1. Take a mule ride through Kalaupapa National Park – Molokai
Hawaii's national parks really are like nowhere else on earth, and while there are plenty of ways to see them, it's hard to beat a mule ride – who could resist those sweet faces? You'll certainly be thankful for their sturdiness as you descend Kalaupapa National Park's dramatic cliffs – measuring more than 500 metres they're the highest sea cliffs in the world.
Take in unbelievable views of Molokai – also known as the ‘Friendly Island’ – as you meander around the picturesque trail and learn of the island's history and folklore.
